Alright, I'm about to head off to San Diego Comic-Con and thought I'd squeeze in one more pertinent update, as it has a panel there this year. Earlier this year I worked on a science fiction feature film called Space Command: Redemption. We shot the first part of the film in April and the editor has been preparing a sneak peek trailer for their panel at San Diego Comic-Con. This past week, they decided to do a few pick-up shots on our nearly completed bridge set to round out the trailer. I've been extremely busy shooting the pilot for Nobility, but managed to coordinate shooting the Space Command pick-ups on my one day off.
We only had a few lights, but fortunately I've been working closely with our ship designer and builder to integrate as much lighting into the design of the ship as possible. This allowed us to shoot the pick-up shots relatively quickly and with a minimal crew (basically just my gaffer and I) and a very small lighting package. I was quite pleased with the look we got. The directors asked for Star Trek Into Darkness but with a less flat look to the lighting. I think we got a pretty close look to what they were asking for and we managed to do it for just a little bit less money than J.J. was working with.
I'm looking forward to the show going back into production (probably in late August or early September) so that we can shoot the final two-thirds of the movie.
